If there’s one thing I love more than anything but don’t do nearly as much as I should- it’s explore London. When I travel, I’m the first person to rifle through Instagram, Bloglovin’ and Pinterest- scouring out the cutest exposed-wood tabled cafés (Instagrammable tables not always obligatory), hottest burger bars and messiest (but gloriously filled) vintage hideouts; but when it comes to exploring my home town- and my favourite ever city, I’m a little bit lazy- and it’s something I’m determined to change this summer.
So, starting as I mean to go on in this sunny weather- this Monday, Joe and I did a little research and decide to delve a little further into our native Saaaff London- by finally visiting the Horniman Museum (by way of the most delicious brunch at Canvas & Cream). After hearing so much about it, and it merely being a couple of bus rides away- it seemed all too naughty that it’s taken this long to visit. With it’s cabinets adorned with the most natural history you can find this side of the river, and primates including a dodo (although I can’t promise it’s a real one ; )- learning more about our animal counterparts and admiring the stunning Victorian conservatory in the sunshine made for a hugely rewarding afternoon- without even venturing into Zone 3- huzzah! The museum also holds different exhibitions throughout the year too (there’s currently a fascinating one on Romania)- so it’s worth seeing what’s on there too…
